BBC News: 'NHS Tracker 2019'

The tracker shows users how well their local health services are meeting the government targets for their area.

I was the lead developer on this interactive piece, updating the previous version for 2018 to include mental health figures. This was easier said than done, as mental health is funded slightly differently and therefore data is recorded differently, and different terminology is used. As part of this project, I was mentoring two junior developers. This involved pairing with them on certain aspects, assigning them their own tasks, being on hand to talk through any issues and provide code reviews. This was a challenge whilst juggling my own workload, but I received positive feedback from everybody involved.
